Broken: American Airlines map legend

AamapRob Borucki writes:

The American Airlines route map, from the website, has nice little icons which represent different types of service in each city.  But what's the red square for Eureka/Arcata and Redding?!


There's also a red square for Hilo right down at the bottom.

And how did Salt Lake City get so far from its lake?

The red squares represent "Codeshare" cities. Other pages seem to show the legend properly.

I know! Eureka and Redding are both served by Horizon Air, the regional partner of Alaska Airlines. American Airlines codeshares some flights with Alaska/Horizon. They also codeshare with Hawaiian Airlines as well: Hilo is a Hawaiian Air destination. It's too bad never mentioned about the codeshare symbols on the U.S. maps! (They usually use the squares on international maps).

I don't get it. But I'm stupid so it's just as well.

Looks to me like it would be two Airport names, not city names.

More importantly. There are no Route Maps on the website. Frustrating.
